The Importance of Service Maintenance
In order for your vehicle to function the way it should, regular service maintenance is a must. Even if you did not invest a lot of money when buying it, you should stick to its regular service intervals for at least two reasons.
The first one has to do with the functionality of the vehicle. In modern times, we depend a lot on our means of transportation. This is especially true for countries as big as the USA. That is why our daily routine could be seriously disrupted if we allow our vehicle to break down only because we have not serviced it when we should have. Motor oil, for instance, gradually loses its viscosity with time and mileage. This means that it stops performing its lubricating and cooling functions properly, and that could lead to some very serious repairs - in the worst case scenario, you would need a new engine.
The second reason has to do with safety. An example which immediately comes to mind is the need for a regular brake fluid flush. The above-mentioned viscosity problem is valid here as well, and the brake system is probably the most important one in a vehicle from a safety point of view so it must not be compromised.
All in all, this is true not only for lubricant changes but also for the regular change and repair of components and consumables that tend to wear fast. So consult your owner’s manual and take your vehicle for regular maintenance at a reliable auto repair facility.
